We've been here a number of times over the years and the meals we've had (always breakfast) are remarkably consistant. The service is always friendly, the food is always very good (rarely great) and the clientel is always a mix of tourists and locals. The pancakes are good, although the blueberry pancakes can have too many blueberries, resulting in some sogginess. Most other items are very good. The prices are pretty high for this kind of home cooking but are consistant with other places in Bar Harbor. And yes, the sizable extra charge for real maple syrup is disappointing.
